Wow. It's been a little over 6 weeks since my last blog entry. I have been a putz. I haven't been treadmilling lately. I was all full of excuses too! My hip was hurting, I was too busy, my cough was too bad ... and the truth was, I just didn't f... Read more
Half hearted effort
Thursday, February 05, 2015      3 comments

Still watching. Still tracking food. Still walking. Still drinking water. But my food is more to the high end of my calorie spectrum than it was in the beginning. Today my calories hit 1500. Gotta watch that. I've lost a little over 35 lbs. tota... Read more
Still at it.
Tuesday, January 20, 2015      3 comments

I haven't made a blog entry for a while. Christmas kinda slowed me down. But I'm still at it. I walked on the treadmill every day over the holidays, up until now! Except for Christmas day. I had planned to walk on Christmas day, but ran out of t... Read more

Still working at it. I never know what to write that I don't sound like a broken record. I walk daily on the treadmill for 30 minutes with mileage between 1.25 & 1.31, depending on hip pain. I'm not quite ready to increase my time, although I'm ... Read more
Slowly but surely ...

Slowly but surely the pounds are melting. I am down 24 lbs. ... almost a quarter of the way there. Monday will be 7 weeks since I've started eating less, about 5 weeks since I got my fitbit, and about 4 weeks since I got a treadmill & star... Read more
Scale narrowly escapes window toss

Well well well. The scale is FINALLY moving. I was about to throw the darn thing out the window. I have remained the same weight, for more than a week, closer to 10 days. ... Read more
I've always hated exercise.

Still hanging in there. Haven't lost any more weight. Not happy about that. But I know I'm doing the right thing. I have my treadmill mile fluctuating between 22.5 & 23 minutes, depending on my hip pain. (Still go for 30-35 minutes, but enjoy se... Read more
I still have 3 days
Monday, November 24, 2014      5 comments

Still hanging in there. Doing well with the eating. Staying around 1200 calories or less a day. My weight loss has halted for the last 3 or 4 days but I suppose that's normal. I know I'm doing everything right. Eating enough, exercising, drinkin... Read more

Upped my game
Wednesday, November 19, 2014      2 comments

Not an amazing feat for most, but if you read my last blog entry (11/17/14) you will see that I've upped my game just a little. I have shaved 3 minutes off of my 30-minute-mile. I'm still walking for 30 minutes, which comes to 1.10 miles. Yaay m... Read more

I can't believe I'm doing this again. It has taken me months to get back on track. As per my last blog entry, my mom got very sick. I was so busy caring for my parents that I wasn't worrying about how healthy my meals were. Anything quick. Not t... Read more
What? Restart? Again?
Monday, April 07, 2014      3 comments

Well my last RESTART was a total blow out. I swear every time I try to start a diet something in my life goes haywire. I restarted on February 5th, on February 6th I had to admit my mom to the hospital via the ER and she was in there for 2 weeks... Read more
Restarting ... for the umpteenth time.

What I've been doing lately just isn't working. And what is it that I have been doing? "Watching" what I eat. Well yes, I'm watching as I eat more & more. Sooooooo running back to Sparkpeople with my tail between my legs. I need to document eve... Read more
I'm at an all time new low-level of disgust with myself.
Monday, November 18, 2013      4 comments

I am so totally disgusted with myself. I'd lost 20 lbs. over the summer (unheard of for me), went on vacation, gained some back, came home and worked like a dog to get back to 20 lbs., then went off the wagon and in the past month I have gained ... Read more
I did not do too shabby at a not too shabby wedding.
Sunday, September 15, 2013      2 comments

Yesterday I ate oats 'n egg whites for breakfast. Turkey (2 oz), mustard, fresh tomato on a small hamburger bun for lunch. And dinner was wedding food. OMG this place was pretty freakin' swanky and they had a plethora of food. They had a carving... Read more
